Here are my basket and tote bag -- both completed in one evening. I took advantage of a photo shoot last night at Patch Halifax during the Maritime Modern Quilt Guild monthly meeting.
I have been seeing this basket all over the internet but didn't realize it was a free pattern. Thanks to my friend Jenn @ A Quarter Inch from the Edge for the tip. The pattern can be found over at Kelby Sews.
|The lining is Kona Cyan.|
Thanks to Linda @ Scrapmaster for the tip on this free tote bag pattern. I added a pocket to the front. You can't see it, but the lining is....wait for it...orange. I couldn't resist using my favourite colour.
The one-hour basket really only takes an hour -- although I spent a considerable amount of time choosing the lining fabric. I didn't track how long it took to make the tote bag, but I'd guess about an hour and one-half.
Looking forward to Saturday. Getting together with the Squares for a sew day. I love when our little bee gets together. Sewing, going out for lunch, and fabric shopping -- what a great way to spend a Saturday. I hope there is sewing in your weekend plans.
